During a conversation I said

I've not slept for a long time

She replied

From when you haven't slept

She should've said since. As from here sounds Kinda unidiomatic

Actually the more idiomatic way to say this would be.

How long have you had trouble sleeping?

or

How long has it been since you had a good night's rest?

Neither "from when you haven't slept" nor "Since when you haven't slept" are idiomatic.

Or perhaps:

I haven't slept.

Since when have you not slept?

Since when haven't you slept?

  • This answer is hard to understand at best. Moreover there already is a perfectly good answer. – Jeff Morrow Apr 25 '18 at 0:09
  • Just offering some different ways to phrase the sentence. Is that not allowed? – P VV Apr 26 '18 at 15:12
